Artemis can use the *outputs* of Feff8: the feffnnnn.dat files are the same
format as from Feff6.   I think that what you were having trouble with was
having Artemis run Feff8 for you.  I do not believe that has changed,
though I'm not entirely sure why that was not working.  But you can run
Feff8L outside of Artemis and then import the resulting path files.

Larch comes with Feff8l, which is sort of what you were asking about. Larch
does not (yet?) have a GUI for running Feff or for fitting a sum of Feff
paths to a set of EXAFS data.  It does have Python functions to do all
these steps so that you could write a simple script to perform a fit.
Artemis can use Larch as its underlying EXAFS fitting engine.  Artemis does
not (yet?) do everything that Larch can do (fit in wavelet space, for
example), but Larch does not (yet?) provide "fuzzy paths", and you would
have to work those out in your own script.

Hope that helps,
